Thank you for your query. What date did you first enter the UK?
Hi, thank you for your enquiry, I am reviewing your question for you
Did you get a stamp in your passport when you went to Belgium?
So when you go through the e-passport gates the system notes your entry dates. You get your 6 months from when you enter the UK, however you have to be very careful where the time you have been out of the UK is very short although you will not be considered an overstayer but you will not be allowed entry on the grounds 'you have made the UK your home'. essentially therefore you need to make sure when you leave before the 6 months you spend a significant amount of time. I hope this helps and I would be grateful for your rating at your earliest convenience. All the best
Hi, apologies for the delay, i have not been online. Yes your understanding is correct and what you propose to work with March is sensible because the 4 days to Belgium are too short for the home office to be convinced that you are settled more in the US than the UK in a given 12 month period. All the best. if it is not too much trouble I would be most grateful for your rating at your earliest convenience
